Nintendo of Canada Rolls Out List of Best Buy Locations Featuring E3 Demos

best_buy_logoThe recent Nintendo Direct saw Nintendo of America Chief Operating Officer Reggie Fils-Aime reveal that a number of Best Buy locations across North America would feature exclusive pre-release demos of games being shown at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles as the show is going on. 110 locations in total will feature these demos, with 89 in the United States and 21 in Canada.

Today, Nintendo of Canada has revealed which Best Buy Canada locations will be participating in this program. The demos will be playable from 4pm to 8pm local time on Wednesday, June 12th and from 1pm to 5pm local time on Saturday, June 15th. Further details remain rather vague– in part because they no doubt include games yet to be announced, but also because it only lists which cities have participating Best Buy locations. That said, the list is as follows:


  • North York
  • Toronto
  • Mississauga
  • Windsor
  • London
  • Ottawa
  • Kingston
  • Brampton
  • Oakville


  • Montreal
  • Lasalle

    Now to find out which one in Ottawa actually gets the demo… And I’m sure other cities have the same issue.

      Merivale or Coventry.

    • Yeah eh. Kanata would be ideal for me, but I’m electing something more central. Honestly I don’t mind a 10-20 min drive, which is pretty much all it takes to get to downtown even, but it would be nice to know before hand where I need to go 😛
